Synopsis

Read our exclusive interview with Juan Pablo Villalobos in which he talks about the writer-translator relationship, Mexico's drug wars and the use of black humour. Plus, read Adam Thirwell's introduction to the book.

Tochtli lives in a palace. He loves hats, samurai, guillotines and dictionaries, and what he wants more than anything right now is a new pet for his private zoo: a pygmy hippopotamus from Liberia. But Tochtli is a child whose father is a drug baron on the verge of taking over a cartel, and Tochtli is growing up in a luxury hideout that he shares with hit men, dealers, and the odd corrupt politician or two. Down the Rabbit Hole, a masterful and darkly-comic first novel, is the chronicle of a delirious journey to grant a child's wish.

Juan Pablo Villalobos was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, in 1973. He has researched topics as diverse as the influence of the avant-garde on the work of Cesar Aira and the flexibility of pipelines for electrical installations. He lived in Barcelona for several years where he published his Guardian First Book Award-shortlisted debut, Down the Rabbit Hole, then moved to Brazil, before returning to Spain. He is married with two Mexican-Brazilian-Italian-Catalan children. His fourth novel I Don't Expect Anyone to Believe Me won Spain's prestigious Herralde Prize and will be published in English translation in 2019 by And Other Stories.
